A letter from the Principal
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year here at St. Philip. Our staff and I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve and help provide your children with a memorable school year.
The Indiana Department of Education has rated us as an “A” school. St. Philip Catholic School has also been recognized as a Four Star School. We are very proud of these accomplishments. In order to be successful, it takes a collective effort between parents, students, and teachers. Without your support, this would not have been possible.
The Catholic Diocese of Evansville once again has a Diocesan theme. This year the theme is “Called to Serve.” The staff at St. Philip feels called to serve God’s children through the ministry of Catholic education. We will also guide our students to find ways that they feel called to serve Christ.
St. Philip has planned our annual theme for the 2017-2018 school year. This year’s theme is “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” –Philippians 4:13. Our staff has created an exciting plan to incorporate this piece of scripture into our entire school year. We will strive to support our students in a process of establishing a plan where they can rely on God’s word to find the strength to meet their goals. Students will receive their “theme” shirts on the first day of school. We have organized a prayer service to kick of this year’s theme with the students.
All other important information can be found in your Back to School folders that you received here today. Please sit down and review the information in these folders and return any forms that the office will need to keep on file.
We look forward to kicking off the 2017-2018 school year and hope that you are also excited for a great year ahead!
